Gov. Kristi Noem says South Dakota celebrating International Women’s Day with bill banning biological males from girls’ sports

South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem joined in Monday on a social media frenzy to recognize International Women’s Day, sending the message that her state was celebrating the occasion by passing legislation that will protect women’s sports by prohibiting biological males from competing with girls.

What are the details?

Noem tweeted out, “In South Dakota, we’re celebrating #InternationalWomensDay by defending women’s sports! I’m excited to sign this bill very soon.”

The Republican governor linked to a message sent by the group American Principles, which proclaimed, “GREAT NEWS! The South Dakota Senate just passed the Women’s Fairness in Sports bill, 20-15. It now heads to @govkristinoem’s desk for signature.”

The Hill reported that the bill, once signed into law, will “legally prevent any student at a state institution from joining a sports team that does not match their at-birth biological identity.” The legislation would require “athletes in South Dakota state schools to provide information regarding their biological sex as well as their age and whether they are taking steroids.”

The American Civil Liberties Union in South Dakota is not happy about the legislation, issuing a statement that said the bill “is an attack on transgender women and girls that will cause them serious emotional and physical harm.”

“It prevents transgender women and girls from having the opportunity to play sports and have their personal dignity respected,” the statement added.

Debate continues on transgender athletes

Biological males competing in girls’ sports has sparked a fierce debate in recent years as transgender athletes have dominated biological females in competitions. The situation has caused particular controversy in high school sports, where girls’ athletic records and college scholarships are on the line.

President Joe Biden signed an executive order calling on U.S. schools to allow transgender athletes to compete in the gender category with which they identify, dismissing biological women’s civil rights protections under Title IX. When pressed on the issue, White House press secretary Jen Psaki recently explained that “the president’s belief is that trans rights are human rights,” Fox News reported.

But the White House and trans advocacy organizations have dismissed biological women’s civil rights in regard to the issue.

The ACLU, which purports to stand up for all those whose civil liberties are oppressed, is one of the groups that has selectively ignored biological female athletes’ civil liberties on the topic.

In the organization’s own tweet celebrating women on Monday, the ACLU tweeted, “On International Women’s Day, here’s your reminder that trans women are women.”

VIDEO: Violent feminist, pro-abortion protesters smash windows, toss Molotov cocktails, vandalize churches during International Women’s Day protests in Mexico

International Women’s Day protests in Mexico turned violent Sunday as feminist, pro-abortion protesters smashed windows, vandalized churches, and launched Molotov cocktails into crowds, leaving dozens injured.

The violence was a part of a day of protests where 80,000 people marched through Mexico City’s historic center — as well as many other places across the country — protesting for greater access to abortion as well as an end to violence against women.

According to Reuters, outside the National Palace and Mexico City’s main cathedral, women activists wearing green bandanas symbolizing support for abortion clashed with counter-protesters, some reportedly with “shaved heads” who gave Nazi salutes. The women tore down banners that depicted abortion as femicide and then set them ablaze as they traded insults with counter-protesters.

One female protester was caught on video launching a Molotov cocktail into a crowd that included a group of policewomen in riot gear. The firebomb set on fire a female photographer who was later hospitalized with second-degree burns.

Elsewhere in the city center, masked protesters smashed the windshield of a car with hammers, overturned a van, and burned buildings, Reuters reported.

Protesters also sprayed graffiti on buildings, including the National Palace, where the president lives. Some graffiti messages said “the president doesn’t care about us” and “misogynist AMLO,” referring to President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador.

Churches were also vandalized in other parts of Mexico

In Sonora, Mexico, feminist protesters attacked a local cathedral, smashing its windows and attempting break down the doors as families celebrated mass.

Two videos of the incident included in a report from ACI Prensa, a Catholic Spanish news outlet, show the outside of the cathedral vandalized with graffiti and protesters attempting to break in as churchgoers barricaded the door with benches.

Inside the cathedral, churchgoers can be seen scrambling to protect their families as outside protesters loudly bash the door and smash the windows.

According to ACI Prensa, protesters launched similar attacks on cathedrals in Campeche and Motolinia and on a monument in Guadalajara. LifeNews, in its report on the violence in Mexico, posted Twitter videos of the incidents in those places.

Besides demanding more access to abortion, protesters in Mexico were also responding to the increase in femicides in the country, which, according to Reuters, has risen 137% over the past five years.

“They’re killing 10 women a day — the ones that we know about — in the country I’ve lived in my whole life, it’s unacceptable,” preschool teacher Daniela Garcia, 33, told Reuters.
